"A Walk Down Main Street in the 1950s & '60s" Exhibit

Now On Display | Summer 2024

Let us transport you to a time and place you may even remember, the 1950s and ‘60s in the village of Chateaugay. Come “walk” up one side of the street and back down the other, from the Chateaugay River on the west end to Boardman Brook on the east, to explore the many businesses that lined the street including restaurants, grocery stores, bars, doctors, dentists, and pharmacies along with hardware, clothing, jewelry, barbers and beauticians, lawyers and realtors, bankers and tailors, insurance and photography, service stations, hotels, and even ice cream soda shops. Maybe you will be able to reminisce, maybe you will be educated about what made our village so unique before your time. And, maybe you’ll even run into some folks that you used to walk these very same streets with “back in the day.”

The Archival Center, located on the second floor of the Town Hall, will be featuring this new exhibit from 9am until noon every Wednesday and Saturday until the end September.

We hope to see you there!
